26″ MORGRIP® Connectors with Misalignment Flanges – Built, Tested and Supplied

Connector Subsea Solutions have successfully built, tested and supplied 2 off 26” 3000S MORGRIP® Mechanical Flange Adapter Assembly terminating with 26” 1500# Misalignment Flange.

A fantastic team effort – our workshop technicians, project managers and design engineers in Walsall, UK have worked diligently to deliver connectors with complex requirements…

Our customer required 26” 1500# misalignment flanges terminating both connectors. The misalignment angle of the flange has been restricted by design to +/- 3 deg (standard +/- 10 deg), at the customer’s request, to allow for an intelligent pig to pass through the bore of the connector without restriction at the MAF after offshore installation.

Each connector is supplied with mating blind flanges, Inconel 625 gaskets and studbolt assemblies. The connector MAF termination and blind flange RTJ grooves are clad with 3mm thick Inconel 625 overlay.

Both connectors endured internal/hydrotest at 218bar pressure with an 8 hour hold period and passed successfully.
